WTOP Radio 103.5 FM, the number-one radio station in the DC area and top-billing station in the country, announced that it is growing its web presence at WTOP.com to rival its broadcast success and provide additional news services to its various audiences.
A new, state-of-the-art WTOP.com was launched earlier this year and, during the past nine months, WTOP.com has doubled its staff and restructured the online department under the leadership of Director of Digital Media John Meyer.
"We are in the process of transforming our operation into a digital news organization. Whether it is radio, web, mobile, text, photos, video, social, or whatever comes next, we are using all these tools to best further the story across as many platforms as we can," said Meyer.
"We are striving to provide our audience with interesting and actionable information so WTOP becomes part of their DNA, in order to accomplish this we must continuously reevaluate traditional roles and restructure how our news room operates," said Digital News Director Mike Gartell.
